Sentimental Easter Requests
I'm hosting my family Easter dinner tomorrow, and my 80 year old Dad wants a lemon meringue pie. I love baking and cooking, but my attempts at lemon meringue have been marginally successful. I made him one anyway, warts and all. Until 2 months ago, he was a vigorous 80 year old man with a sharp mind and a knack for business. He has colon cancer and has gone through chemo. The chemo was just a precaution, however, it wreaked havoc on his personality and general interest in life. I am afraid this might be his last Easer with us, so pie it is! I won't think about lemon meringue pie in the future without thinking about my Dad. Does anyone have a loving memory to share?
